A new wave of Arabian mixed martial artists will emerge at the penultimate BRAVE Combat Federation event of 2022 as the following generation looks to carry on the legacy and advance the achievements of the pioneers who came before them.

A group of Arabian athletes will have the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of renowned first-generation superstars like past BRAVE CF global champions Jarrah Al-Silawi (Jordan), Mohammad Fakhreddine (Lebanon), and Algerian icon Mohamed Said Maalem on December 12 at BRAVE CF 67.

Since the brand's foundation, BRAVE Combat Federation has produced 22 world champions, seven of whom are Arab fighters, demonstrating the most global MMA promotion's dedication to give athletes from the MENA region an opportunity to succeed and build a sustainable life with MMA.

There were no international venues for Arabian athletes to compete and demonstrate their abilities prior to the founding of BRAVE CF by Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa. Due to the lack of a worldwide audience and competition, regional athletes were only allowed to compete in minor local competitions.

The product was made available to the rest of the world a few months later, demonstrating once again BRAVE CF's capacity to sate the cravings of a large worldwide audience while empowering athletes and their families.

Athletes from Egypt, Tunisia, Iran, and Algeria will compete this week at BRAVE CF 67 for a long-term contract with BRAVE CF. The Arabian athletes that came before them made the most of the BRAVE CF platform and are now well-known worldwide.

After touring more than 13 countries with BRAVE CF, former BRAVE CF Featherweight champion Elias Boudegzdame (Algeria), former BRAVE CF Lightweight champion Ottman Azaitar (Morocco), the first-ever BRAVE CF double-division champion Fakhreddine, and others have become household names around the world.

Al-Silawi from Jordan fought through BRAVE CF against competitors from eight different countries and in three additional nations besides his own. Fakhreddine from Lebanon visited seven different countries while representing BRAVE CF to reaffirm the organization's platform, platform, and authority.

The main event of the penultimate event on the 2022 BRAVE CF calendar will be a special closed show for BRAVE TV, featuring a Super Welterweight match between Eldar Eldarov (Bahrain) and Denis Maher (Belarus). The 63-kilogram Catchweight match between Russian Bair Shtepin and French-Algerian Yannis Ghemmouri will serve as the co-main event. Go to for additional details about BRAVE CF 67.
